Shallow drop bars with 26mm clamp

Postby timdownieuk » 2 Nov 2015, 2:22pm

I'm looking for some shallow drop bars with a more "anatomical" grip that will let me reach the brakes a bit more easily if I'm riding on the drops.

This is the kind of shape but these aren't particularly shallow drop. Deda Piega Road 26.0mm Bars in Black, 42cm https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00ADOE176/ ... nwbT8KBGYT

Alas, it seems to be a development that's come a bit late for old bikes with a 26mm clamp, or at least I'm having trouble finding some. I suppose the choices might be wider if I moved away from the old quill stem but I'm sentimentally attached to keeping the old bits in use. ;-)
